Contest provides support for Northern B.C. businesses

November 2, 2022

MNP is ready to support Northern B.C. businesses once again through the return of their Grow the North contest. Managers or owners of businesses in Northern B.C. can apply to the contest with proposals for their business to pivot, become more profitable, innovate, safeguard future business income and other needs.

Prizes are being offered by MNP for the top three business applicants, with the winner receiving 50 hours of professional business consulting from MNP. Consulting services include performance improvement, governance, human resources, technology and e-commerce implementations, research, forecasting, capital planning risk management and many other services designed to grow the value of a business.

MNP is currently accepting applications via their website. All applications are due by midnight on February 1, 2023. A pre-selection committee will review all submissions and identify semi-finalists. Up to six semi-finalists per region will be invited to virtually pitch their idea the week of February 13. From there, the top nine applicants will be offered support from an MNP advisor prior to delivering an in-person pitch in Prince George on March 3. The winner will be announced one week later, on March 10.
